Stainless steel design

Stainless steel design

Stainless steel design

Designing stainless steel fabricated structures and would like to know if anyone has experience with the following:

Accepted code for stainless steel design allowables.  Currently using allowables similiar to AISC ASD i.e. 0.6Fy for calculated bending stresses and 0.66Fy for calculated principal stresses.  Basically require documented accepted code to back these assumptions up.

RE: Stainless steel design

For structural applications of steel in buildings, AISC is considered authoritative, without a great deal of significance to the particular alloy, though some are referenced.(That doesn't preclude others)

RE: Stainless steel design

Although I have not used it, I believe that the following book might be what you need:

Watter & Lincoln "Strength of Stainless Steel Structural Members as Function of Design" Allegheny Ludlum Steel Corp. Pittsburgh, PA, 1950

Hope it helps.
